Frank, funny and - perhaps unexpectedly - often moving, it is a tale of a man battling to escape his background and become a star. He is a walking medical miracle. Back when I met the man, it was the day after Princess Diana died and while humble and cordial, he had a bee in his bonnet about some of his gigs having to be cancelled out of sympathy. He thought his only career choice would be a life of crime. I recommend this to all fans of comedy and dark humour.
